Fashion Model Engaged To Prince Rahim Aga Khan

Kendra Spears, a top fashion model, is engaged to Prince Rahim Aga Khan and will become a Islamic princess. She is pictured here walking in the Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2012/2013 fashion show in Paris July 3, 2012.
Kendra Spears already lives a life of glitz and glamour as fashion royalty, being one of the top models for the likes of Chanel and Louis Vuitton, but she’s about to get a whole new glamorous take on life as a princess.

Spears, a 24-year-old native of Seattle, Wash., is engaged to Prince Rahim Aga Khan, the eldest son of Aga Khan IV, the current Imam of Shia Ismaili Muslims.
It is unclear exactly how long the model and the 42-year-old prince have been dating, but a Friday press release from the Aga Khan Development Network announced the two are happily engaged. Photos accompanying the press release showed the couple smiling together outside, with her engagement ring on full display.
There’s no word details of the ceremony, but the news blast said the two would be “married in a Muslim ceremony” and the date has yet to be set.
"Thank you all for the kind tweets! We're very excited!" the model tweeted on Friday after the announcement circulated. 
Spears, who was discovered in 2008 after winning a Ford Models competition, has walked most recently in the Fall 2013 shows for Louis Vuitton, Anthony Vaccarello, Jonathan Saunders, Marc Jacobs, DSquared2, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Chanel, to name a few. She’s also appeared in top fashion magazines like Elle and Vogue as well as international campaigns for Calvin Klein and Diane von Furstenberg. The Telegraph pointed out that the brunette beauty is nicknamed the “mini Cindy Crawford” because of a small mole on her upper lip resembling the fashion model icon.
Spears is not the only model to marry into this royal family, either; Prince Rahim Aga Khan’s father married British model Sarah ‘Sally’ Croker-Poole and his grandfather was married to iconic actress Rita Hayworth. Spears is likely to adopt an Islamic name and convert to the religion, The Telegraph reported, when she marries the Prince.

Victoria's Secret fashion show brings out celebs, top models

Rihanna rocked lingerie at Wednesday night's Victoria's Secret fashion show in New York, providing the highlight of the live-music soundtrack and holding her own on the catwalk with some of the world's top models.

And those models even had props, including Adriana Lima's ringmaster wand, Doutzen Kroes' body cage and several pairs of the oversized wings that the retailer has made its signature. It would be a close contest who got the biggest wings: Toni Garrn's giant poppy pair or Miranda Kerr's swan-style feathered pouf. Only Lily Aldridge could boast star-spangled wings that shot out silver sparkles.

Alessandra Ambrosio's orchid-petal wings might have lacked a little grandeur, but she made up for it with a $2.5 million jeweled "floral fantasy bra."

Still, wearing a sheer pink mini that gave glimpses of her bra, Rihanna sang "Fresh Out the Runway" at the end of the corset-and-garter parade and she was the one to grab the audience's biggest applause.

The fashion show has become a pre-holiday season tradition for the retailer. CBS will turn it into a one-hour special, which also had performances from Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars, to be shown on Dec. 4.

Lima said she loved opening the show in the ringmaster costume. "The atmosphere of the Victoria's Secret fashion show is electric," she said. "It's so much fun to be able to interact with the audience! What other show will you see Rihanna, Justin Beiber and Bruno Mars on the runway with angels?"

This year's event had a slight twist. It started with an announcer noting that Victoria's Secret and CBS had each made a donation to relief efforts for Superstorm Sandy, and a thank you to the National Guard members who are based out of the Lexington Avenue Armory that has for years been home to the show.

Mostly, though, models are encouraged to smile, ham it up and show off the extra time at the gym that most admit to in the weeks beforehand. "It's highly televised, and you take that into consideration," said model Joan Smalls ahead of the show. "This is kind of not the same as other runways. You have to prepare your body: No. 1 is the wings are heavy, and No. 2 is you have to be comfortable with your body because the camera will pick up on it if you're not comfortable and confident."

There's an emphasis on glitz, skin and dramatic production here, not wearable undergarment trends for typical Victoria's Secret shoppers. It was divided into six sections: Circus, complete with acrobats, contortionists and a sword eater; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls, which allowed Bruno Mars to serenade a model for each month of the year.

For his first song, "Beauty and the Beat," Bieber, wearing low-slung white pants and a white leather studded vest, sat alone with his guitarist in the mellowest part of the show. For "As Long As You Love Me," however, he brought in backup dancers and interacted with the models while moving around a giant makeshift pinball machine.

"It's like a dream come true," said Bieber on the pink carpet before the show. "I would rather be here than anywhere in the world."

Fashion Model 'having the best time' after break-up with DiCaprio

The 23-year-old model - who broke up with the 37-year-old 'Inception' actor last week after 10 months together amid reports he did not want to settle down and they struggled to see each other because of their busy schedules - insists she is doing fine after their break-up.
Top Fashion Models
She told E! News: "I'm having the best time right now. I couldn't feel more beautiful with all my friends. It's wonderful."

The Victoria's Secret model's best friend Lily Aldridge, 26, also confirmed Heatherton is doing fine and thinks it won't be long before she is dating someone else.

She said: "I don't think Erin's gonna have any problems getting a man. I'm pretty sure there's a line around New York City waiting for her. 

"Every guy I know is like:'Please introduce me to Erin!'"

Aldridge - who is married to 'Kings of Leon' rocker Caleb Followill with whom she shares four-month-old daughter Dixie Pearl - also revealed she is doing everything she can to help Erin move on.

She said: "Erin is my girl! She's my daughter's godmother, she's my best friend and she's just amazing. She is such an angel, such a star. She's the best."

DiCaprio, who recently admitted he hasn't met the love of his life yet, has wasted no time since the split and was spotted flirting with a string of models at a Halloween party in the plush Standard hotel in New York recently.
